Human Tissue Research

Austen Garwood-Gowers

Oxford University Press

Medicine has long been one of the battlefields over which ideological warfare relating to whether it is imperative to respect human beings as ends has been fought. Part of the conflict has been concerned with medical use of the human body and its constituent parts. Demand for such a use has burgeoned in the last century and increasingly become a hook upon which to attack emphasis on respect, obfuscate what it entails, and undermine commitment to protecting it. This chapter explores how this is specifically evident within discourse, practice, and governance concerned with use of tissue for research purposes and why it is problematic not only as a matter of ethics but also in the light of human rights principles.
